I've joined the Miles for Miracles team because I believe so strongly in all the amazing things Boston Children's Hospital does for kids:
- The hospital's patient care programs are unusually sensitive to what sick and injured children and their families really need.
- Researchers regularly make amazing discoveries that change children's lives.
- Boston Children's welcomes kids whose families can't afford health care--more than any other hospital in Massachusetts.
- Community programs makes a point of reaching out to help low-income and at-risk kids.
And the hospital doesn't just stop there. Boston Children's really understands the importance of training the next generation of top pediatricians and nurses, so they can continue to provide the best, most innovative care possible to kids.
I am running for Quinn Kuzsma, Rich Kuszma's daughter as part of the patient partner programme. You can find more information about the programme here
Quinn Kuzsma, age 5, has been living at Boston Children's Hospital since October, when she was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia, a cancer in the blood. The doctors, nurses and supporting staff there have been unbelievably great to her. Doctors from all over the world seek advice from Quinn's primary team. They are renowned for what they do and the outcomes they deliver. What's more, they understand that there is more to treating cancer than just delivering the right medications. The nurses intuitively grasp how to connect with all the kids. Quinn has developed a special bond with many of them. The staff are always going above and beyond to make life as comfortable for Quinn and our family as they can. From the play room, resource room, and outdoor garden designated for immuno-suppressed kids like Quinn, the facilities at Children's are wonderful.
Rich has this website setup for Quinn, that is a journal that talks about Quinn's battle with AML, highlighting her progress and how she is fighting through this.
I would be very grateful if you could support me in supporting the hospital! Please make a gift today.
